How to Get There

Romantik Hotel im Wasserturm

Cologne, 50676 Germany


fancy looking hotel with terrible rooms

While the bottom floor and the stair case and the arboretum is super nice the rooms are just unrenovated dirty and smelly.

The staff was friendly and helpful but reacted unfriendly when confronted with the problems in the room.

I never come back here!


Poor service the people at the reception never smile. You have to pay extra for AC. God forbid you have to cancel or change dates they charge you for everything. Needs refurbishing badly, it has an overused air. Nice breakfast room but awful breakfast very few options. Just avoid it at any cost.

Quiet and spacious, easy walking to local attractions

The hotel is located on a quiet side street with easy walking access to the main shopping area as well as restaurants and bars. It is also just 5 minutes from the Poststrasse U-Bahn stop which connects with several main lines.

The hotel is well presented and the public areas are comfortable and smart. My room on the third floor was large, with separate sitting room and walk-in closet as well as a bedroom. Even with the windows open at night, it was quiet. The room did not have aircon but was OK for sleeping with 20-25C tempratures. There was a small fridge, but it did not get cold enough for my liking.

The bar downstairs has a pleasant leafy yard which is nice for drinks in the evening. The bar serves beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. Breakfast is available in the restaurant but I would recommend finding less expensive options as long as you are happy to walk for a few minutes.

I would recommend this hotel as a good base to explore the city, though maybe not during very hot weather.
